To start my card I water colored a background with several Avery Elle liquid watercolors. Next, I heat embossed the flower stamp with White Fine Embossing Powder and die cut it. Just look at those details! Love it. I finished the card with a sentiment from Banner Bits.

Sea-prise! Avery Elle

Hi Friends! Today I'm sharing the terrifyingly adorable stamp set Sea Prise! Who doesn't like a smiley shark? Here we go...

For today's card I was really inspired to get back to ink blending. I've been water coloring A LOT but ink is fun too! I started the card by stamping and die cutting the shark image. I hand cut a mask for the wave and blended a few layers of Distress Ink. Next, I added the same ink to a scrap piece of paper for the shark to hide behind. 

From there I decided it needed more color so I blended several colors of rays behind the waves. I just used Post-it tape to mask the edge is each ray.

I finished the card with a sentiment from Banner Bits.

Thanks for stopping by!

Avery Elle Mod

Hi Everyone! I'm excited to share the Mod stamp set by Avery Elle. Let's check it out...

For my card today I wanted to experiment with the shapes in this set. After a few tests I came up with this fun sun pattern. To create this trendy look I started by finding the middle on the left side of my card base. I stamped the two large shapes in the set on either side of the middle. Then, I continued the pattern, alternating pieces.

I finished the card with the Hello sentiment from the set and a few Thickers I had on hand. I also decided to stamp and pop the yellow ray up for extra dimension. 

Thanks for stopping by!

Avery Elle Humming Bird

Hi Friends! Ashley here today sharing the super pretty Hummingbirds stamp set!

I can't get enough of the liquid water colors so I started by embossing several images from the Hummingbirds stamp set. Next I just played with the water colors and the images, blending several of the colors on the bird and flower.

Avery Elle Magnolia

Hi Everyone! Today I'm sharing the beautiful Avery Elle stamp set Magnolia. The light pink and white flowers are my favorite. 

To start my card I heat embossed the large magnolia flower in the set on watercolor paper. Next I colored the flower with VERY watered down Cherry and Celery liquid water colors. 

Then I created the water colored background with Mimosa and stamped the sentiment from Floating Wishes. I used the Wonky Scalloped Frames Dies to frame the water coloring. I mounted this all on the striped card base. To create the stripes I simply masked lines, blended Distress Ink and splattered water colors.

Thank you for visiting today!

Avery Elle Critter Crew

Hi Everyone! Ashley here today sharing the super fun stamp set Critter Crew. This is one of those amazing sets that packs a ton of cute animals in to the perfect card sized stamp. I love it!

To create my card I started by water coloring the background and flicking on extra color. Next, I stamped and die cut the adorable animals. I paper pieced the box and colored the animals with Copics. To create the box I just used kraft paper and drew the dots with a slightly darker shade of Copic marker.

I finished the card with an embossed sentiment on a die cut banner and some twine.

Avery Elle & Ellen Hutson Watercolor Blog Hop

Hello!  We are so excited to be hopping along with our friends at Ellen Hutson today.  We are featuring projects using our NEW Liquid Watercolors and are SO excited to show them off in action.  Avery Elle's liquid watercolors come in 10 gorgeous shades that can be used on their own or easily mixed together to create custom colors.  For an intense shade use the watercolors straight out of the bottle.  If you want lighter shades, just add various amounts of water to get the color you desire.  The possibilities are endless.  Be sure to check out all of the details of the hop as well as how to be entered to win one of TWO FULL SETS of our Avery Elle Liquid Watercolors over on the Ellen Hutson Classroom Blog.  

Let's get to the hop shall we?  

For my card today I created this fun scene using bunnies from Party Pals. A party wouldn't be complete without balloons, right? I added mine from the Toucan Party set. The bunnies were placed on a water colored background. I'm totally addicted these awesome new watercolors! They make backgrounds quick, fun and full of style.

Next, I created hill with the swimming pool from the Splash! die set. I love finding new ways to stretch my dies. The card was finished with an embossed sentiment from Toucan Party.

 Thanks for joining me on the hop today. You are off to see the card created by the super talented Elena Roussakis!
